obama defied the polls and predictions in an election that was expected to be one of the closest in history, even with florida tonight still up in the air. the president won more than 300 a tour of votes to secure another four years in the oval office. many republicans are left in shock at the results asking how with 23 million people unemployed almost 8 percent unemployment, record national debt in excess of $16 trillion, scandals and controversies from operation fast and furious, the benghazi cover-up, how could president obama possibly win reelection so impressively? a popular vote margin of more than 2 million votes, but an electoral vote margin of almost 100. an examination of the fox news exit polling data shows the obama campaign won big with key constituencies, and a strong showing by the democratic base responsible for putting the president over the top. president obama drawing on the latino community. xbox projecting 71% of hispanics voted for the president. that number up from 67% in 2008 and, of course, the historic level. the president's support among black voters ac
these developments has been managed, and if so, to what purpose. today two days after the president's election, we learned that two iranian fighter jets, like this one, attacked one of our unmanned an unarmed predator drones. that attack took place 16 miles off the coast of kuwait in international airspace. happened last thursday, but an administration official has remained silent until today. today we learned that boeing will be slashing another 10 percent of management jobs in its defense division by the end of thii year in an effort to cut more than $2 billion in costs. boeing says it cannot project exactly how many workers will lose their jobs as a result. and boeing is going to some great lengths to insist that these layoffs have nothing to do whatsoever with the sequestered defense cuts set to take place next year. you will recall that less than two months ago the obama white house was so intent on avoiding publicity like this it offered to indemnify government contractors for losses and find if they held off on issuing left notices. that is required by the warrant act until after the electi
evening, everybody. the presidential election, the balance of power in congress has been decided, but this is certainly not the new beginning president obama had once envisioned. with the country set to hit the so-called fiscal cliff at year's end president obama and congress are seemingly committed to repeating their rhetoric and, perhaps, their mistakes as they ostensibly work toward avoiding the calamity of going over that fiscal clef. house speaker this morning made it clear. he thinks this is the president's moment, and he called upon the president to lead, and he called on the president to find middle ground between a bitterly divided republican house and democratically controlled senate now, this is an opportunity for the president to lead. >> this is his moment to engage the congress and work toward a solution that can pass both chambers. and earlier this week the president and i had a short conversation. it was cordial. i think we both understand that trying to find a way to avert the fiscal cliff is important for our country. lou: the speaker also noted that when he cam
